Side Table Revamp

Side table spray paint and stencil tutorialI inherited these oak side tables as a part of the package that came with my husband.  I finally got at them with some spray paint and stenciling to help them fit right in to their surroundings.  Here is what i did…


  • Tables to revamp
  • Sand paper
  • Spray paint (I used Krylon Outdoor in Ivory and Tuscan Sun)
  • Stencil
  • Decoart Texture Magic Dimensional paint (I used Golden Pear)
  • Hardware (I covered my knobs in polymer clay, here)


Side table before makeover

  • Sand side tables lightly with medium grit sandpaper.
  • Wipe away debris with damp cloth
  • Spray paint with desired color
  • Once spray paint is dry, remove drawer and tape stencil in place.

  • Use spatula to spread thick layer of texture magic from the center of the stencil out.

  • Remove stencil, being careful not to touch the wet texture paint.  Let dry completely (drying time depends upon how thick you made the layer – I sped mine up using my heat tool).
  • Spray Krylon clear coat or other finish for protection, shine and durability.
  • Put on your hardware and you are finished!

I did two tables to coordinate.  I brused over the raised stenciled area with distress inkpad in walnut to enhance the texture.  Easy revamp…
